The Australian Statistician is responsible for determining the ABS work program, which must align with the ABS’s mission, its legislative mandate and its values. The ABS seeks to provide an appropriate level of service across all legislated functions within available funding.

Ensuring that resources are used to the maximum benefit of governments and the broader community, the ABS takes account of the value of the information being sought, the extent to which undertaking the activity is consistent with the ABS’s legislated mandate and with community expectations, and the costs that the activity would impose upon the ABS, providers and the broader community.
